Need Spokes & Nipples for '85 CR Wheel

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have an '02 XR200 and I just picked up an '85 CR125 front-end so that I could have a disc brake. Only problem is, the spokes & nipples are wasted. I've checked ebay and only saw stuff for way over $100. I'm hoping that enough people here have done a front-end swap and have an idea as to where to get this stuff a little cheaper? Thanks!

Have you tried Buchanan? 

I did the same thing with an 86 front end. Took off a couple spokes, took measurements and contacted Buchanan Spoke and wheel. A week later they showed up on my door step. I want to say it was the equivalent of about $2 per spoke.

spokes are expensive, no way around it.  I also used Bucanan for spokes for my 21" ktm 85 wheel.

Lacing and/or truing the wheel is expensive too. Hopefully you've been watching videos on YouTube to do yourself. I haven't tried it yet myself, but I might eventually just to see if I can do it lol
